Climb up to Breakfast Ledge then round to the right and up the brambly corner. Take a deep breath and head off across the tenuous undercut slab traverse under the main overhang to a hanging belay. Third pitch takes you up to the top of the main overhang.

P1 and 3. Pretty exciting stuff, all three pitches had several "moments"

Led pitch 2. Forced my way through the brambles to the start of the dirty undercut break. First few moves across the break felt very powerful and tenuous. Brambles ensured I couldn't get back into the corner to revise the sequence and I slumped onto a cam. Further attempts felt very shaky. Came down slightly and found a much easier traverse a bit lower down. Harry took a midway line which matched up with the description of the "friction ledge". Avon really shows me how bad my route finding is!

Led P1 and P3. Typical scary Avon! Not helped by the midday sun.... P1 was a nice romp to the lovely 2BB at breakfast ledge. P2 was marred by brambles and vague route descriptions - undercut shelf or blank invisi-ledge? Various descriptions disagree. P2 belay is 3 decent but variously aged pegs and a bolt. Generous tat-donating climbers required in the not too distant future... P3 lovely and done before but bold bold bold on the slab high above the rock pin. The gallery belay on P3 furnished only with a nut and an ash tree which has seen better days. Mysteriously, two recent-looking adjacent bolts present with hangers removed.....

P1 is not very clear but we belayed from a stake. P2 is a scary slab. We wend down from there, I have done P3 before and it was getting dark as we took ages to do these two pitches.

Not sure where P1 went, description is very poor. I managed to get one micro wire and a sling around a bush before calling it a day! Where ever the route started I don't think I was there...

Led pitch 1 & 3. A bold feel to everything, but that wasn't helped by my shakyness from lack of trad climbing! Felt good to get back onsighting stuff. Nice new bolt belay on breakfast ledge!

pheotleyr 02/Dec/13 Lead O/S

Not quite sure where the first pitch goes, but might have found most of it. Second pitch isn't runout at all, lots of bomber gear (big nuts) in the undercut break (the start of which was slightly wet and full of brambles, so started a low traverse right and climbed up to the break after a couple of meters). Last pitch quite runout but fairly easy. Overall, I expected this to be scary but it wasn't. Quite good, but not really worth any stars I think?

Great climb, can't believe i hadn't done it before. p1, direct up to breakfast ledge at 5a, run out. then combined p2&3, using horizontal crack in awkward undercut traverse, past beg belay and up with big rope trag to next belay. finished off on ???

Unnerving traverse on P2 and very runout P3, good line though.

George Frisby 09/Jun/12 2nd dog

Fell on First pitch under the overhang when trying to remove gear. Frictionless slab was very scary, felt like I was about to fall at any moment and the final right hand hold on the traverse was hard to reach.

lead all pitches - 2nd pitch was by far the best. With there being a large wet patch if the corner were to be followed right to the top, I traversed halfway across the slab before heading directly up to the undercut break.

Got some gear in then foot traversed a low smeary seam. It's easier to hold the slopers below the gear break with feet on ickle blobs, but a lot of people undercut/sit(!) it.
